What Makes This Recipe Great
The sun is out, the days are warm, and it’s absolutely time for a refreshing, delicious, and dreamy iced coffee recipe! This cardamom-spiced, iced mocha coffee is creamy, flavorful, and perfect in every way!
In just 5 minutes you’ll have the yummiest cup of coffee to start your day off right!
- Easy, 5-minute recipe
- Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, & Vegan
- Can be made low-sugar
- Versatile (with easy swaps to customize it!)
- Whole30 & Keto options!
Cooled Coffee: You can use either leftover coffee or cold brew.
Original Nutpods: If you’re not dairy-free, you can also use half and half or heavy cream.
Raw Cacao Powder: Nutiva is a great brand for this. You can find it at Costco, Thrive Market, Sprouts, etc. This is different than cocoa powder, so be sure to double-check! Skip this if you don’t want the mocha flavor!
Maple Syrup: You can use more or less depending on your sweetness preference. If you’re trying to make this lower carb you can use Keto-friendly maple syrup or monk fruit sweetener. I like to use 100% pure maple syrup.
Vanilla Extract: I know this is mocha iced coffee, but trust me, don’t skip the vanilla!
Cardamom Pod: Optional, but gives it amazing flavor! It almost reminds me of a homemade Pop & Bottle Latte that I love to grab for a treat at Whole Foods!
Recipe Step by Step
- Blend all ingredients in a high-speed blender for 1 minute, then pour over ice. Enjoy!
Mary’s Tips & Tricks
Dairy-Free: If you’re dairy-free, be sure to use Nutpods or your favorite non-dairy creamer of choice. I prefer original Nutpods because it’s thick and creamy like half and half, and has no added sweetener!
Whole30: If you’re doing a Whole30, skip the maple syrup, use Nutpods, and enjoy!
Make a Batch: Want to make enough mocha iced coffee for a girl’s brunch or a big family breakfast? Click “print” on the recipe and increase the number of servings you want. The ingredients and amount will automatically adjust!
Yes! Depending on your preference, you can use agave, honey, monk fruit, Swerve, simple syrup, brown sugar simple syrup, or even no sweetener at all!
If you use Nutpods instead of dairy, and maple syrup instead of honey, this iced mocha coffee is totally vegan!
Yes! If you don’t want this to be mocha iced coffee and would prefer just a regular iced coffee recipe, feel free to leave out the cacao powder. All of the other ingredients still make the most delicious iced coffee!
Yes! Simply swap the maple syrup for a keto-friendly sweetener and you’ve got yourself a low-carb, keto mocha iced coffee!
